ACUVUE OASYS vs ACUVUE 2ACUVUE OASYS® and ACUVUE® 2 are time-tested contact lenses, introduced more than a decade ago. The daily cost of wearing ACUVUE® 2 is slightly lower than the cost of its sibling and both lenses can be worn for an extended period of up to 6 nights. ACUVUE OASYS® is also offered as a toric or multifocal lens and due to the silicone material, it comes with a much higher oxygen transmission value resulting in an increased oxygen flow through the lens to the eye.
